Make A Wish!

My blogging friend Maria from Crafty Creations was kind enough to send me some Penny Black and Stamping Bella images. I couldn't wait to use them but then life intervened and I was too busy to play with them. I got this one out and colored it while watching "So You Think You Can Dance" with my daughter on Thursday.

I wanted to practice with my Copics (practice, practice, practice, right?) and am happy with the way this image turned out. I didn't like the color of the floor so I went over it with Prismacolor pencils and OMS to change the color a bit.

The image is colored to go with some October Afternoon papers that I had sitting in my stash that I hadn't cut into yet. I like these colors and it makes a great boyish card to add to my stash.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a fabulous week end.



  • Image: Critter Party from Penny Black Stamps
  • Papers: GP white CS, Bella's Best CS, SU Old Olive, October Afternoon Ducks in a Row & misc. scraps
  • Inks: Momento black
  • Tools: Copic Markers, paper piercing tool, Prismacolor pencils & OMS

  • Techniques: Faux stitching


Too cute! I really like the layout, your choice of patterned papers and especially the image with teh puffy cupcake icing.
